Quote of the Week (Early This Week)

A commentary about the Supreme Court's overturning of certain parts of the Voting Rights Act.

"The profound mistake of Reverend Wright's sermons is not that he spoke about racism in our society. It's that he spoke as if our society was static; as if no progress has been made; as if this country — a country that has made it possible for one of his own members to run for the highest office in the land and build a coalition of white and black; Latino and Asian, rich and poor, young and old — is still irrevocably bound to a tragic past."

-Barack Obama, March 2008
